Re: Another one bites the dust...
Same here. Years ago I went into a store for some parts. I stood behind a guy who was waiting for the salesdroid to finish activating some other person's cell phone. After ten minutes, the guy ahead of me got fed up, dumped the items on the counter and walked out in a huff. I was kind enough to go back to the shelves and put mine back on the pegs, then I walked out. After that I didn't go into another RS store for years.
I did go in recently to buy a battery holder. Then I recently went into a RS store and walked out when I saw they wanted $20 to $25 for a USB cable. I walked across the parking lot to the dollar store and bought one.. for a dollar.
I have no sympathy for them, because they once served the customer, but now have lost that service. I think if they drastically cut the number of stores - there are far too many in the metro area where I live - then they might survive. If they liquidate, I don't think I would go out of my way to buy stuff marked down 80 percent, because it would still be overpriced.
